Whether you're preparing for a casual dinner party or snacks for the office, our Spicy Soy Nut Pretzel Mix, from Miraval's Mindful Eating cookbook, can be made in advance and kept covered with plastic wrap for up to a day. Truth be told, we don't think it will last that long at your house—this addictive snack tends to disappear quickly!
Spicy Soy Nut Pretzel Mix
Makes 5 Cups; Serving Size: 1/2 Cup
- 2 1/2 c. salted, small pretzel sticks
- 2 1/2 c. unsalted soy nuts (or any other raw nuts or combination of raw nuts, if desired)
- 1/4 c. agave syrup or honey
- 2 1/2 Tbsp. Blackening Spice Blend (7 Tbsp. onion powder, 7 Tbsp. paprika, 6 Tbsp. ground black pepper, 6 Tbsp. dried oregano, 6 Tbsp. dried and crushed thyme, 4 Tbsp. garlic powder, 3 1/2 Tbsp kosher salt, 3 Tbsp. ground white pepper, 2 tsp. cayenne pepper)
PREHEAT the oven to 375ºF. Lightly coat a baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray.
COMBINE all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat evenly with the spices. Bake the mix until deep brown in color, 30 to 34 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cook on the baking sheet. (The mixture will also crisp as it cools.)
TRANSFER the mix to a decorative bowl and serve at room temperature.
